VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - More than a half dozen people who were sickened by salmonella at a Valdosta fast food restaurant are now suing.

72 people were treated for Salmonella poisoning in 2006 after eating at the Arby's on North Ashley Street. One of them died.

The bacteria was traced to a meat grinder. The restaurant underwent major renovations after the outbreak.

An Atlanta law firm has filed suit against Arby's on behalf of seven of the people who were sickened and the family of the customer who died.

The suits seek undetermined damages from the restaurant, its franchise owners and the company that made the meat grinder.
